I want to change it too from linear characteristic to ergonomic tactile MX switches, because I type with ten fingers in the classic manner
In my opinion it is an odd thing, that it is written "tactile" on the homepage, but they are using linear switches.
I was very disappointed, when I received it.
As I saw in this forum, and with my ideas there are 3...4 ways:
+ change the mx switches itself, by unsoldering them replacing with other MX switches bought by a distributor of Cherry
+ change the spring (or not?) and the characteristic relavant part in the MX switch (from black to brown), by opening the switch (e. g. destroying the
upper half of the casing), taking another MX switch bought at a distributor, to open carefully the newly bouht switch and transfer the upper
half to the open switch and close it carefully.
+ Cut off the electronics of the board, make an own board with newly bought MX switches, change the keycaps and connect the new PCB with the
cut off parts and hoping everything is done well.
+ Existing old keyboard with scan logic on small print (rubber foil technology), buy keyswitches MX with desired tactile, make a new PCB and
wire it like the old keyboard, change the keycaps, mount the new PCB and the small PCB from the old keyboard to the DECK case.Anybody experiences with above solutions?
Therefore I need to know, which MX keys are built in:
Deck Fire (red LED) MX1A-11RW - right?
for the Space key: MX1A-?1NW (no LED!) - what is ? - right?
So I have to buy which ones for ergonomic tactile?
MX1A-E1NW or MX1A-31NW?
for the Space bar which?
